    Can anyone let me know if they sell single cans to go from the taproom?

    Nope but they sell four packs, 6 packs and bottles. And their taproom/outdoors is amazing.

    Tried Bonedagger last night. Damn, what a pale. Worth grabbing a six pack.

    I like Bonedagger a lot. I can’t even remember the last 12oz can I bought of anything that wasn’t Burial.

    Nice heads-up @KRubes!

    Burial's can designs are just too kewl. The beer ain't too bad either.

    Each of their can designs could be a metal album cover.

    David Paul Seymour, the artist, gained his notoriety through designing metal bands album covers. It fits in well with the names of Burials beers, which I think they mainly get from rennaissance era art pieces

    Which Renaissance painter did Surf Wax? Gotta be either Perugino or Botticelli.

    Just saw your post, @CavemanRamblin. I was probably checking out when you posted. The line had shortened, and the limits were still three of each four pack i believe. They had just restocks a few with a big load from their van. Good early crowd. I was there at 11:40, left at 1:15.

    I waited until there was no more line (a few mins ago) and they still had everything but the DIPA. Although it did look like stuff was running low. Still a few goodies left on draft too. I could get used to this.

    Great release. Very smooth. I think they had 20-30 cases of each beer. Well over 100+ people in line when they started sales.

    Agree, I got there around 11:30, had two drafts in line and got 1 of each. Talking to one of the Burial guys sounds like they will do it again. Glad to see Raleigh get some love!

    Agreed and agreed. Great atmosphere and no confusion. Come with two POS next time and boom, wait times cut in half (although, with that tap list available, the wait wasn’t even bad at all)! I got in line around 11:40 and was close to being even with Fying Saucer and everything was still fully available when I made it up there. The Saucer did send an employee over to see what was going on. Haha.

    Agree that it seemed very orderly and well run. They also seemed to bring about the perfect amount of beer. Cheers to Burial and to State of Beer who always handles big events really well.

    Good call. Two POS would have been ideal, but I can't complain. I wasn't too far ahead of you.

    I had one on draft there and really liked it. Makes me want to try the first one in the series they did with FF.

    Def a fun little release, and some tasty beers as well. Enjoyed the format and hope Burial and maybe other breweries consider doing the same thing.

    ^^^ Luv how that stainless works with the old pine within the building. The pic peaked my curiosity regarding their new Forestry Camp location and I came across this somewhat dated article:

    http://bittersoutherner.com/from-th...king/life-and-death-and-burial-beer-asheville

    I found it to be a good little read and gave me a better understanding as to the roots of Burial. Gotta get a trip together to get back out there and check it out in person.

    Hey guys a group of friends and I are making the trip to Asheville for the Fonta Flora festival June 9th. We are wanting to do a moderate size bottle share. Does Burial frown upon these things? We would obviously be buying a lot of their stuff, but we are all coming from different parts of the country and want to share our local beers too.

    I've never seen a bottle share at Burial before, which leads me to believe they frown on it. To be honest, I don't think I've ever seen a bottle share at a brewery in NC, at least when they're officially open to the public. Best bet would be at one of your hotels.

    Actually, I take that back. Foothills obviously does bottle shares at their brewery, both the night before and the day of Sexual Chocolate and BASC releases. And OHB often does before and during releases (though I wasn't really counting them since they're brewery is rarely open to the public). But those are only a couple days a year and are planned in advance by the brewery.

    Any Burial releases this weekend? I'll be in the Asheville area Friday and Saturday and would love to get my hands on some fresh cans

    Generally their Facebook is up to date. Sharpen the Blades (Saison Festival) is this weekend at Burial, $15 for a glass and 2 beer tokens. They'll probably have bottles of the beer they brew for the festival, Garden of Earthly Delights, still available.

    My assumption is probably not, but you can always ask them to be sure. Shoot them a message on Facebook or an email and I'm sure they'll get back to you pretty quickly.

    A bottle share before a 5 hour beer festival, now that’s aggressive.

    Anyone know what J Wake is bringing up for the Burial and friends event tomorrow? Hoping for one of their big stouts, but not going to hold my breath.
